Why Red Fire Ants Love Lakeland, FL
Lakeland is the largest city on Interstate 4 between Orlando and Tampa. Like most other parts of Florida, it has humid subtropical weather and abundant thunderstorms throughout the summer.
Lakeland also features dozens of beautiful lakes, including Lake Parker, Lake Hollingsworth, Lake Morton, Lake Mirror, Lake Gibson, and others that are unnamed.
All of this sunshine, warmth, humidity, and water combines to create a fire ant paradise! Their favorite places to build their nests are open, sunny areas like meadows, pastures, parks, playgrounds, lawns and golf courses, as well as wilderness areas and agricultural land.
Even floods won’t drown or deter them! Instead, their colonies will actually emerge from their nests, form a huge ball or raft that can float on the water, and flow with the water until they come upon a dry area or object that can shelter them until they can re-establish a nest (mound) in the soil.
The best way to successfully control red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) is to kill the colonies from the inside out.
The Fire Ant Control Solution
Fire Ant Control, LLC is a recognized specialist in controlling red fire ants on any size or type of land. The potent, food-like granular bait we use contains an insect growth regulator that sterilizes the queen and is approved for use around people, pets, livestock, and on pastures, hay fields and farmland.
Worker ants eat the bait and carry it down into the colony, causing the fire ants to die naturally. Extermination is not immediate but, once the queen is sterilized, the entire colony will disappear, and no new ants will be born.
We guarantee that our treatment will rid 85-95% of the fire ants from your residential, commercial or agricultural property for six months at a time, or your money back.
Because fire ants can fly, however, they will eventually come back. This is why we recommend having your property treated twice a year to prevent further fire ant colonization.
Fire Ant Control’s proven treatment works for properties ranging from small residential lots to thousands of acres. Our bait is regulated and approved for use on public and private lands. It is superior to sprays and insecticides that are short-lived (only killing surface ants), dangerous, and expensive.
